bizarre & hilarious "authourless" recording of a bent flexidisc playing on a standard turntable. the record itself is a guide on how to make sound effects with one's voice, and was left between the pages of the book which came with the record for many years before being found at a thrift store. this recording has been edited from about an hours worth of original recordings. no layering, post production, or other human interference beyond editing was peformed.

astonishing 'authorless' recording of a computer game in demo mode with wildly malfunctioning sound. "nox" posesses an incredible internal logic & impeccable sense of timing. human involvement in this recording is limited to the pressing of 'record'. record was press by andrew thomson, sometine in the year 2000. nox has been released in a couple of small cdr editions, the 1st featuring a unique collaged cover on each copy.

Three tracks of hellish, blasphemous noise reguritated and spewed forth by Secret Killer Of Names, Company Fuck and Urblooten, in tribute to Burzum's "Aske" ep. Expect frostbitten tundras of muddy bass sludge, inverted buzzsaw noise riffs and diabolically mangled screams. The remains of Burzum are necrotically defiled to the point of unrecognisability in the face of this grim and unholy assault by these fearless noise vikings, but such evil spirits are not so easily defeated and...

Three movements from improvised material that seamlessly float into one another. We start with a trip back to the womb, with a single bass tone rumbling your innards. This then flowers into a fractured drone/groove reminiscent of Berlin's glitch/dub pioneers (this is live processing of a single guitar,...

Recorded during Earth Hour 2008 (+10GMT) We set up on my back deck amongst trees and sandalwood candles and improvised for an hour on our laptops. Recording is the sum of both Hard Disk and ZOOM H2 with windshield. Minor EQ and an attempt at properly syncing the files is the only editing they have seen. Do we curse the earth with our schizophonic sound?
